Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL), Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), and AtkinsRéalis have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to explore opportunities to collaborate on heavy water production for Candu reactors. Under the MOU, the three organisations will consider working together, as well as with additional strategic partners with the expertise to accelerate technologies, to either produce or upgrade heavy water. This could be used in the commissioning and operation of new Candu reactors in Canada, the construction of which would need significant volumes of heavy water that would require the construction of new facilities in Canada.
